Skyscape

As I photographed the sun among the clouds recently, I thought of it as a landscape in the sky, hence the title “Skyscape”.

 

Forest Floor in Autumn

I noticed this Oak leaf resting on some green moss today while walking through a wooded area in Muskegon, Michigan. The intricate veins throughout the leaf structure looked interesting to me. This particular example must have fallen recently as it appeared more fresh than the surrounding leaves.

Autumn Road

I found this country road near Grand Haven, Michigan recently and enjoyed the Autumn view. Most of the colorful leaves in the area are gone now as winter approaches.

 

Engulfed In Color

I found this tree today engulfed with Fall Color on a West Michigan roadside. With so much rain and high winds in recent days, many of the trees in the area have lost their leaves. I was happy to find some nice examples that had survived those conditions, still displaying their full brilliance.

 

Power of the Lake

I enjoyed photographing some large waves crashing into the Grand Haven State Park lighthouse today on the shores of Lake Michigan. This is typical every year during Autumn as the winds and waves grow in intensity on the big lake. The lighthouse itself is over 40 feet high with the spray from the waves rising above that height today. (click on an image to see an enlarged view)

Autumn Glory

Autumn is one of my favorite times of year, in large part due to the beautiful colors that seemingly explode from the trees. I decided to focus on a more detailed photo of a leaf and found it interesting to add a layered look to the image by positioning the angle of view to show another leaf behind the one in the foreground.

Autumn Growth

I found this mushroom growing among Autumn leaves on a West Michigan forest floor. I liked how the earth tones complemented each other with the composition.

Fungi on Log

I found this fungi growth on the top of a log in Southwest Michigan. I’m not an expert on fungi, but found this to be an interesting subject to photograph. You can click on the image to see a more detailed view.

For my 400th post I present this photo which I took today at the Outdoor Discovery Center Macatawa Greenway in Holland, Michigan. I found the Elk crossing a stream while displaying its impressive rack.

Color of Transition

I found these vibrantly colored leaves which were surrounded by green yesterday as evidence of the Autumn change beginning in Ottawa County, Michigan. If you would like a high resolution photo or greeting card of this image, just click on the photo below for ordering info:
